Michigan Rhinoplasty Malpractice Attorney
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” can be an ideal procedure for anyone that is looking to correct an imperfect nose, or in search of a new look. This procedure can alter the form, function, shape, or size of the nose. This is a procedure that has become more popular over the years and continues to have Michigan residents visiting surgeons for rhinoplasty consultations. While this procedure has been successfully completed on multiple occasions, the risk of something going awry always persist. When performed improperly, the effects can harm the patient mentally, physically, and emotionally.
What is Rhinoplasty Malpractice?
Rhinoplasty malpractice is when a surgeon doesn’t treat the patient with the proper medical standard of care which ends up harming the patient. This standard is based off of the level of a care that a surgeon with similar training would give in the same or similar situation. When a surgeon disregards his duty to you as the patient, he is putting your physical, mental, and financial wellbeing in jeopardy. We urge that you get in contact with a Michigan rhinoplasty malpractice lawyer while the recollection of the event is still fresh in your mind.
Injuries Sustained from Malpractice
A properly performed procedure should leave you with the nose that you initially desired, but carelessness on the part of the surgeon can leave you with many undesirable side-effects. These include:
- Nerve damage
- Difficulty breathing through nose
- Bossa deformity
- Nasal valve collapse
- Polly beak nasal deformity
- Synechiae formation
Proving a Rhinoplasty Malpractice Claim
U.S. law says that you have the right to be paid for any injuries sustained by someone else’s negligence. If you or a loved one has suffered life-changing consequences from a rhinoplasty procedure, you should be aware of what needs to be proved in order for your case to be successful. One must prove that:
- The surgeon had a duty to the plaintiff involving the medical standard of care
- The surgeon violated that medical standard
- The surgeon caused the plaintiff’s injuries
